Intermediate Division Ages 6-12

Our 2020-2021 season will be a mixture of in-person and zoom classes. This allows both dancers and instructors alike to participate fully either in person on a limited basis, online, or a combination of both. While it’s our desire and plan to return to fully in-studio instruction and rehearsal as soon as possible, we will continue to follow the guidance of local, state, and federal health officials and eagerly await a world in which the COVID-19 virus is mitigated to an extent that will allow this. Our hybrid schedule will include an A and B rotating schedule. One week, a group of dancers will be in-person at CCD while the other dancers are conducting classes via Zoom. The following week, both groups will rotate to the opposite method of learning. We will attempt to pair families so their classes will be on the same rotation schedule. All students will also have the opportunity to attend all classes via Zoom only if this is what makes them most comfortable. For the Adult schedule, some of our Faculty will be teaching via Zoom only. Please visit https://ccdance.org/adult-program/ for all Adult Class info.

Please read our Fall 2020 Safety Protocols. 

Please print and sign our CCD Fall 2020 COVID-19 Waiver before taking any classes beginning August 9, 2020.

 

Students in Intermediate 1 will build their skills and knowledge of dance and classical ballet by learning awareness of their arms, heads and body placement along with more complex movements of the feet and legs.  

Students in Intermediate 2 begin adding basic turns and jumps to their movement vocabulary while they build strength, control and awareness for the carriage of their bodies.

In Intermediate 3, emphasis is placed on strength, flexibility and rhythm, as well as mastery of the basic skills, body placement and classical positions.

Emphasis is on the enjoyment of dance within the framework and regimen of classical ballet training. In Intermediate 3, students are encouraged to study Intro to Modern dance along with Somatics/Improv, providing an introduction to contemporary dance and knowledge as they grow into strong diverse dancers. Students at this level should expect to stay in each level for 1-2 years.

2020-2021 Class Descriptions:

Intermediate Power, Flight, and Turn is an energetic opportunity for young dancers to gain full-body strength (to help with lifting other dancers in the future) while refining their technique to lay a foundation for superb turns and jumps. Dancers will learn excerpts from classical repertoire typically attributed to male danseurs.

Intermediate Somatics & Improvisation is a precursor to studying Modern Dance, this class will focus on building an understanding of one’s inner physicality. Dancers will study the basic concepts behind movement invention, exploring aspects of space, time, and energy. Dancers will learn basic anatomical structures and kinesiology.

Technique Intensive – CCD’s Technique Intensive class allows for dancers and their dance teachers to focus collectively on the minute details of proper technique, which will ultimately contribute to our dancers feeling successful and confident. Very important to us, we also want our students to feel they are being seen and understood. This will sometimes be a one-on-one class, a small group, or a large class setting. This class will eventually expand to other dance forms, but it will remain a ballet-focused class during the 2020-2021 season.

Variations/Gala – Dancers enrolled in Variations will learn solo and small ensemble works from existing standard classical repertoire. Each class will learn three to four variations per year, allowing the faculty member to focus on refinement and the details of each variation. For those who choose to perform in our annual production of Gala, dancers will perform one or two of these variations as a small group based on the artistic vision of each individual faculty member.

 

2020-2021 rotating Class Schedule for our Intermediate Division Classes. Students will rotate between In Person and Online. Those who wish to take all online are able to do so as well. 

GALA represents a class that will perform in CCD’s year-end performance on June 5, 2021*.

Dress Code for Intermediate Division Students for 2020-2021 Season

New dress code goes into effect August 24, 2020. CCD is beginning a three year transition to present a more equitable and inclusive version of the standard, classical dress code. At this time, we are working with our partners at Boulder Body Wear to find reliable, high-quality vendors, but a consistent offering will take time. Until our dress code transition is complete, we will allow female dancers to choose between wearing pink tights and pink shoes OR flesh colored tights and shoes. Our ultimate goal is to have tights and shoes which match each female dancer’s skin tone.

Leotard (Girls/Young Ladies) Motionwear Style # 2200 in Iris
Shirt (Boys/Young Men) Motionwear grey shirt #7207
Tights Girls/Young Ladies – Flesh-tone tights to match as close to the student’s natural skin tone as possible. Dancers who take modern will need convertible tights. Please see our friends at BBW to help you find the perfect match.
Boys/Young Men – Body Wrapper black tights (B90 or M90)
Shoes Girls/Young Ladies– Flesh-tone canvas shoes to match as close to the student’s natural skin tone as possible. Please see our friends at BBW to help you find the perfect match.
Boys/Young Men – Black canvas ballet slippers
Hair Girls/Young Ladies – Long hair must be pulled away from the face into a secure bun. No Bangs. Short hair must also be kept from the face using barrettes or pins. Headbands are not allowed at this level.
Boys/Young Men – Hair should be neat and away from the face. Long hair must be pulled into a ponytail.
Somatics/Improv Dress code + black jazz pants and bare feet; dancers may wear their hair in a ponytail if they have enough time between classes to change their hair style. Tardiness will not be permitted because of a hair change.
Modern (Ladies & Men) Dress code + black jazz pants and bare feet; dancers may wear their hair in a ponytail if they have enough time between classes to change their hair style. Tardiness will not be permitted because of a hair change.
Jazz (Ladies & Men) Dress code + black jazz pants and bare feet; dancers may wear their hair in a ponytail if they have enough time between classes to change their hair style. Tardiness will not be permitted because of a hair change.
Variations Girls/Young Ladies – Dress Code + ballet skirt
Boys/Young Men – Dress Code
 A Special Note for our Transgender Students Students shall have the right to dress in accordance with their gender identity, within the constraints of the dress codes stated in CCD’s dress code policies.
A Special Note for Girls/Young Ladies Girl’s tights serve as underwear dance beneath their leotards, be sure to buy dance tights which have a cotton crotch. Underwear inhibits movement, and are not allowed under tights. We know this can be a bit of a surprise for younger dancers, but they adjust quickly.
A Special Note for Boys/Young Men Boys and men should always wear dance briefs or a dance belt under their tights. These items serve the same purpose as a jockstrap and protect a male dancer from injury. You can purchase dance briefs and dance belts from Boulder Body Wear.

Help avoid an uncomfortable situation for your dancer by explaining these aspects of ballet dress code ahead of time, and arrive to class in proper attire. This will also prepare them for our year-end Gala and other performances as they progress.
